Chemistry 10-23-23 Elements & Intro to the Periodic Table

CHEMISTRY – Wow! Do you realize what we just did?!? We finished the chapter!!! Did you feel like today was mostly review?

HW UPDATE: Instead of the book HW that’s on the syllabus for Monday night, do the Chapter 1 Sample Test. You can get a copy from me or it’s also here under the Worksheet tab. Both the sample test and the research on the three elements will be due Wednesday in class.

There are three elements that you will research for the test – Cu, Si, and P. A great resource to research the elements (and the only one you need besides the textbook) are these video clips on copper, phosphorus, and silicon that a group of chemistry researchers have put together at Watch these and take notes. The information on these video clips will be on the test.. If you can’t get the phosphorus video to work, use this link on YouTube

Hey, have you had a chance to check out the chapter 1 study suggestion sheet? Let me know if there is anything you need help with before the test! (And you’re still learning the symbols of the elements, right?!?)

  1. Hi Ms. Skinner,
    How are you doing. I really miss your experiments.
    Hope you have a lovely day. Also please make their project difficult.

  2. What would burn worse a cup of boiling water or a bathtub of boiling water?
    The tub because it has a higher mass.

  3. I would rate myself a 4/5 this week because I was not prepared for the lab Monday and finished right when the bell rang, but Tuesday I came in prepared and got everything done with spare time. I learned from my mistake and fixed it.

  4. Why does water boil in a paper cup? Energy moves from higher to lower concentration going from a flame to the cup to the water causing it to boil

  5. When you are baking a cake and putting the ingredients in, is it a chemical change or a physical change? A chemical change.

  6. If a scientist creates a computer that runs faster and does not get hot on the bottom. What kind of research is that? Technological development.

  7. Is boiling an egg a physical or chemical change? It is a chemical change because it is a different substance than before.The egg cannot go back to its liquid state now that it is a solid unlike water, for example, in a physical change.
